What I've Been Making...

I just cannot get enough of making little clothes for Reese! I already have ten more ideas in the queue, but here is what I've been working on this summer. 


The Cottage Mama Swing Top & Triple Ruffle Pants in Black Linen


This may be my favorite thing I have ever created. I was greatly inspired by Persnickety Clothing. 
 


Georgia Vintage Dress by The Cottage Mama

Can you see the tiny clothing label that says "Bella"? I finally got my own clothing labels! Bella was Matthew and I's first dog and she passed away the summer that Will was born. I love having her name on my clothing and I think it makes the clothing look a lot more professional. 





Picnic Dress by The Cottage Mama (Free Pattern!)
 




Sweet Dress by The Cottage Mama
 
 
 

As you can tell, I'm pretty obsessed with the patterns that The Cottage Mama produces. Her style is classic and feminine.

AHS Football & West Texas Fair & Rodeo

This last weekend we went to Abilene to go to the Abilene High v. Cooper game and the West Texas Fair and Rodeo. This is one of my favorite weekends of the whole year and it was a blast! 









Reese loved hanging out with Josh

My dad bought Will this rifle which is pretty terrifying. He wanted it so bad! As soon as Will wasn't looking, Reese swooped in to check it out. We were so embarrased to carry it around all night. 







Reese doesn't ever like to sit still. She was ready for the horses to get moving!

Rockport Beach Vacation

Last week we took a beach vacation to Rockport, TX with our good friends, the Grimsleys. We spent two days at the beach until our skin was fried and then spent our last day in Port Aransas where we got to ride on a ferry, watch sea turtles, eat a picnic and get ice cream. The kids did a great job of playing together and sharing. We love the Grimsleys now more than ever. They are an amazing family! 

Special thanks to Justin for sharing his photos. They are the gorgeous ones! 







The water was so shallow which was perfect for our kids. Matthew walked out more than a quarter mile before he had to start dog paddling.

The house that we rented was on a canal which was perfect for fishing in the evenings. 














These are the sweetest sisters you will ever meet!
